Homecoming Changes to Octoberfest This Year The year of ' 73 set forth to modify tradition, to improve upon the past. Ideas and initiative sprang from many sources. A week of turbul¬ ence and high tensions curbed wavering spirits. As the Fall activities dubiously commenced Rocky ' s plans fell back into the shadows of the past. A hasty decision and a re-vote produced a court of eight queens, a compromise, to some a workable settlement. The eight reigned over a wet parade as autumn rains washed colorful streaks from crepe paper to people. In the exu¬ berance of final effort the Rocks defeated Galesburg 25 to 20 under torrents of rain and a royal mudbath. The dance went on as sched¬ uled as the queens and escorts made their ap¬ pearances. Octoberfest 73 made an effort to¬ ward change yet with a sigh of relief varied little from long years of tradition. 74 Octoberfest
